Hey Fashionistas, if you've noticed I haven't had a lot of fashion posts lately, you are correct! I used to do about eight fashion posts a month, but then when Covid hit, I found I didn't need so many clothes anymore as I wasn't doing much outside the home. So then I cut my fashion posts down to two a month and those two posts were fashion challenges that I did with other blogging groups on social media. Well the past month and a half, those two groups either picked themes I wasn't interested in or they picked a theme which I had no ideas or clothes for, so I declined to participate in those challenges. Because I haven't done a fashion post in awhile, I thought I'd share some pictures from TWO years ago! You heard me right! I've held onto these pictures for two years and I never shared them. That is why there are sunflowers in the first picture. 😂. Everyone knows we can't grow sunflowers in Wisconsin in May.
How to Wear Salmon
I absolutely love the color salmon, or peach, or light coral...😉 it's one of those colors that everyone has a different name for. It's a color that complements everyone's skin tone, and it's the perfect color to wear in spring or summer.
I received these comfy, cool salmon cotton pants in a Stitch Fix years ago. I recently styled them with a sweatshirt and sneakers in THIS POST, and with an all white top HERE. At 59, I'm starting to grow less comfortable in shorts, and prefer to a wear a lightweight cotton pant during the hot months instead. I honestly don't find them any warmer than a pair of shorts. The secret to wearing pants in summer is the fabric, and keep them loose...away from the skin as much as possible.
Salmon can be a tricky color to coordinate with. My favorite color to wear with salmon is crisp white! I will quite often reach for a white tee and white sneakers to go along with these pants.
Other colors that go great with salmon are blue, green and eggplant. I'm sure you've already noticed how well this color goes with the beautiful, lush green plant background.
These pictures were taken the first year we planted our vegetable garden: the first summer after Covid. The porch wasn't even screened in or painted yet. I couldn't believe how big, lush, and beautiful all the vegetables grew for my very first year as a vegetable garden. I kept saying "There must have been something in that soil that we hauled in".
My kitty Jackson is an indoor kitty, but he is allowed onto the screened porch and vegetable garden area. We call it his "Catio". 😁
My top coincidentally matches my pants perfectly. The top is super old, from JCP. I owned the top before I got the pants from Stitch Fix. The salmon in the top ties the outfit together, and the blue coordinates and contrasts beautifully.
The top also has a lovely, interesting crochet edge that I just love. It's sleeveless, and hangs very loosely, so it keeps my tummy concealed and is cool and comfy as well.
I completed the outfit with neutrals. I wore neutral thong sandals, a gold bracelet, and bamboo earrings from Amazon (similar HERE).
I hope you enjoyed my two year old fashion pictures! 😃 I hope to be fashion blogging with my other styling sisters soon!
Have A Great Day! Amy
